Stumbled across Rumors tonight after a very long walk around Washington. Each had a couple of drinks and ate clam spaghetti and jambalaya. Really attentive service, never waited for another drink. Food was excellent, extremely tasty. Check it out!

We have bought a groupon for brunch at this place and were very much disappointed. We didn't save at all and ended up with paying full price for a very casual and tasteless meal. Nothing special, no ambiance, a very poor and even shabby interior....More
